The Right Response to Salvation - Part 1

August 5, 2018

In the first 12 verses of first Peter chapter 1, Peter informs the believers of the wonderful details of GOD’s salvation. But, when he gets to verse 13, he makes a shift. He says in effect, “Now that you know all of these details & doctrines about salvation, this is how you ought to live in response to them.” You’ll notice the first word of verse 13 – What is it? “Wherefore.” That’s an adverb which denotes a result or a consequence. In other words, Peter is moving from information to application. Beginning in verse 13, Peter is saying, “Since all this is true, all that I have written so far, here’s what you need to do with it. Here is how to be a doer of the Word, & not a hearer only. Here is the consequential result of these truths – wherefore.”
